Abstract

In the past several years, basic-science studies have shown that vascular calcification is an active, cell-mediated process. It is increased in the uremic milieu and with hyperphosphatemia and therefore should be preventable. Additional advances in imaging techniques have facilitated the diagnosis of arterial calcification, a critical initial step in the translation of this knowledge to patient care.
